Rigoletto:
From the moment he wrote it, Verdi knew he had a hit on his hands. The story had everything: royalty, loyalty, deformity, devotion, lust and revenge.
And the music? The music was sensational, so full of hummable tunes that Verdi demanded complete secrecy from his premiere cast. The tenor was forbidden from even whistling the catchy ‘La donna è mobile’ outside of rehearsals.
The morning after Rigoletto’s triumphant premiere, that melody rang out in the streets: a hit for ever after. The title character Verdi called the “greatest creation” in the history of theatre had found a home in a masterpiece of music.
Leo Nucci is the most famous interpreter of Rigoletto in a generation. He brings his legendary performance as the bitter court jester to Australia for the first time, with Gianluca Terranova and Irina Lungu under the baton of Verdi veteran, Renato Palumbo. Dalibor Jenis, Nadine Sierra and Atalla Ayan are a dream alternate cast.
Roger Hodgman’s plush, period production presents a dark and dangerous world, with forbidding sets and costumes rich in detail.
